I'm no expert, but from what I've seen the issue is usually Scribus
redrawing bits of the canvas that haven't changed or been covered by
anything. I think there's a fair bit more surgery involved than you
might expect to get it to just redraw the items, or ideally parts of
items, that have changed for object moves and resizes, though.
